CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A 40-year-old Corpus Christi police officer has been fired in the investigation of gunfire at a bar when he was off duty.
Police Chief Troy Riggs placed Luis Rodriguez on paid administrative leave following the August incident, then fired Rodriguez on Tuesday.
The 14-year veteran was arrested Aug. 3 at a bar where witnesses told police a gun was fired during a fight. One man suffered head injuries.
Rodriguez has been indicted on one count of retaliation, a third-degree felony. His trial is set for Jan. 31, 2011.
Rodriguez, who's free on bail, also faces three misdemeanor charges of assault, discharge of a firearm within city limits and tampering with the identification numbers of a gun.
